Why ‘Hygge’ Is A Catch-All Term For Cis-Gendered Heteronormative White Privilege

Along with ‘Intersectionality’, the word ‘hygge’ is one of THE words of 2017. Of Danish origin, and a key aspect of Danish culture since 1800, hygge is a word that non-Danes struggle to define.

To an extent, hygge encompasses positive feelings of cozy contentment and well-being through enjoying the simple things in life.  A Dane will tell you, however, that hygge is so much more than this.  It’s not merely holding a cup of hot chocolate to thaw your hands on a cold winter evening; nor is it only cuddling up with a loved one beside a roaring fire whilst wearing onesies.

If hygge is not only these cosy things, then what exactly is it? In fact, hygge is a word that is best defined by what it is NOT. Here then are some accredited examples of things hygge isn’t. Hygge is not:

  • Death by cop: Getting mowed down by racist cops because of the color of your skin. This is not something privileged white Danish people ever need to be concerned about as they nonchalantly light candles to create a cozy atmosphere. By the way, this is an unaccredited use of candles, which should only be employed at vigils to mourn the regrettable actions of lone wolves, whose motives are as mysterious and impenetrable as the ways of Allah.
  • Being threatened by a racist dog as you try to enjoy a soy latte in peace. African American womyn simply cannot contemplate the ‘positive feelings of cozy contentment’ that are a feature of hygge
  • Having war literally declared on you because you are transgendered. This rarely happens in hip downtown Copenhagen, where attractive cis-gendered womyn and men strut their stuff on hygge-fuelled bike rides in a casual-deliberate manner:

If none of these points have ever applied to you, well done, you have our congratulations (/sarc off). You are almost certainly a Cis-gendered heteronormative white privileged male.  Hygge was made for people like you.

Like Everyday Feminism, the Accredited Times is full of articles about anti-hygge matter. We fearlessly take the side of the victim, to the extent that we are proud to identify new classes of victim that were previously unknown to humanity. In a nutshell, we write about anti-hygge matter because victims matter.

Soooo…if I’m a man dressed as a woman, and I don’t have menstrual cycle, but I still get the menstrual cramps REAL bad and can’t go to work, is that ‘hygge’?

I agree with Pbier. Lil Butchie, You have it hard. Don’t have any gratitude for the good things in your life like the hygge’s want you to. You should walk around with a chip on your shoulder and a look of angry entitlement on your face. This is the path to happiness and contentment.

You sexist pig! The mere existence of this woman is BODY SHAMING and a reinforcement of patriarchal standards of beauty!! Being excessively attractive should be ILLEGAL!!

Don’t make other womyn feel like they need to go on a diet, go to the gym and put more effort into their appearance! Hard work is for MEN ONLY!

Men don’t work hard; ignore all that “data” and “science” that says they do! WOMYN work hard while men sit around laughing and sexually harassing them and getting more pay for the same work!

Clearly womyn do the same job for less pay as this information has been repeated 6 billion times and nobody would repeat something over and over again until it was regarded as true, that would be like telling a really Big Lie. Progressives and the media would never do that.

All jobs didn’t go to mexico or china because of same work for less pay, completely replacing the higher-paid same work force, nope, it was capitalist exploitation that did that.

It’s amazing that capitalists don’t want to exploit these valuable womyn by paying them their market wage! They all seem to want to pay them less than what they’re worth!

trav777

It’s also amazing that these greedy capitalists who care ONLY about maximizing profits do not fire all their male employees as the womyn are doing the SAME WORK for LESS PAY.

I have critiqued Anastasia’s videos several times myself.

I watched her because I was trying to decide if that was the reason Putin had invaded Ukraine.

Try critiquing this as well:

Many more can be found if youtube is searched by keywords “band odessa”.

These are East European womyn who do not understand that being normal is weighting 500 lbs, having perpetual PMS, and accusing every male who has ever existed of sexual harassment.

Further research will determine if that’s why Reagan insisted that Gorbachev tear down that wall.

wtf is a walrus doing in ukraine!??! That poor thing also looks like it’s had its skin bleached. Flagging your post for animal abuse

flagged as speciesist, as walruses should be in ocean and not on pavement

This does not look like an East European womyn in protest. “It” is likely an American feminist womyn (of average American weight) since they are much more progressive than their East European counterparts. Womyn from Russia, Ukraine, Poland, etc do not even know that if a man looks at them and tells a compliment, the man should be instantly fired as it is HIGHLY offensive!

A few examples of backwards East-European (Ukrainian) womyn protesting (note slogans, they are occasionally Islamophobic). I am sorry for posting these links/pictures, as mere existence of womyn who do not weight 500 lbs is sexist, as noted above by MDB.

TRIGGER WARNING!!!!

Further research will determine if that’s why our founding fathers insisted on the first amendment right to peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Where is your reporting about Trump starting all those CA wildfires? Doesn’t BLM work the arson stories?

Those were caused by global warming!

Or by Republican operatives working hand-in-hand with Russians in order to burn down Democratic paradise of Clownifornia.

If you saw the arson story I am sure you saw where Mark Dice showed his caring side by telling Chelsa Handler that he hopes her 35 cats were all safe.

Hygge sounds like privilege exemplified! Relaxing by the fireside on a cold winter night, with your wife and kids and dog and a mug of hot chocolate? While unarmed African Americans are gunned down on the streets in cold blood by racist white police officers?? Hygge is the reason that white privileged, straight, hetero-normative, cis-gendered bastards get to relax in peace and luxury while people of color, the LGBTQ+ community and the minor-attracted live in fear of persecution every minute of their lives! Shame, shame, shame!!

Black Lives Matter

Those hygge bitches will get their soon enough. Denmark will be a Muslim country in no time.

THE GOOD OLE WHITE DAYS ARE OVER.

Black Lives Matter

Somebody call a WAAAAAAAMBULANCE! Poor whitey. It’s so hard to be an “oppressed” white, isn’t it?

Give me a break.
